Google his name: Tanveer H Pirzada DVM or the business name, and please look at the Google reviews for this "doctor". His license should be revoked and he should be jailed. Many reviewers claim he harmed or killed animals.

I have been taking both of my dogs to Dr. Pirzada for 12 years and he has always been the nicest, most caring vet in my opinion. My dogs have always been healthy in his care and think he is a wonderful man and vet. He explains everything very well and in a way that is easily understandable. I wouldn't take my dogs anywhere else.

I took my cat Jasper to Dr. Pirzada when he was very sick one day. His clinic wasn't even open but he has calls transferred to his house after hours and met me at his clinic late night on a Sunday! He gave her fluids and antibiotic for ann infection and kept her over night and he got better :) He explained everything thouroughly to me and wrote out everything he was doing so I would know all the charges (which were very reasonable). He was the only vet who would see my cat that night out of the five that I called. I for one am glad he took care of Jasper that night.

i brought my 7 week old kitten to dr. prizada, she was badly dehydrated and needed special care. he had the kitten on the wrong fluids and instead of feeding her kmr he force fed her water. i read these reviews and immediatley took my kitten to home veterinary services on east 14 mile, and they told me that he used the wrong fluids, i brought her home from the other vet and was supposed to give her her kmr every other hour, i woke up at 4am to give her her food, and she just wouldnt eat it and 15 minutes later she quit breathing and died. if he would have done the right thing in the first place, i wouldnt have had to go through all of this bull crap. im very upset by this, and i suggest that anyone who reads this, never take your animals there, especially cats.

Basically...he killed my cat too. CLEARLY she was sick and weak, but he threw her around like a wet rag anyway. Like everyone else said, he charges a boat load for nothing. Do yourself a favor, don't ever take your pet here. Our reg Vet was closed and this was a last resort....never again. He's heartless and had no sympathy what so ever when we called to let him know our cat died 2 days after he 'treated' her. If I could leave 0 stars I would.

Pros: He opened the side door for us

Cons: He's an idiot

I had a Rotti in crisis that needed to be euthanized immediately.Dr Pirzada came in a timely fashion,then proceeded to give a tranq way to small for my Rotti(105lbs).He kept saying dog must have gained wt(he did'nt).He stabbed him literally(4x's) for a total of 9cc's(not nearly enough I was told).Dog at this point is crazed w/fear @ slightest move of DR,& if it looked as tho dog might go to sleep he would make a fast jerky move towards dogs rear.After a nerve shattering 78minutes of this my poor Rotti had become a crazed,frothing rabid acting dog,something he has never been.He even made lunges at my daughter & grandson as we were all 3 having to hold him at this point.25 minutes of this was witnessed by people from funeral home who were waiting to take my Rotti for his private cremation.They were horrified at what they saw also.On the advice of regular vets office I made Mr Pirzada leave my yard under threat of calling police.I paid him $60.00 for his time.(He charges by the hour & we were now starting on the 3rd hour & he was loading the 5th syringe of tranq medicine.I was trying to make my beloved Rotti's last hour pain-free as possible as he has suffered so much with all his leg & joint ailments in his 7.5 yrs.Everyone who saw, or heard how he handled this said it amounted to torture & done to padd the charges.My regular vet was out of town & this guy has big ad in phone book that said emergencies,euthansia,caring service.This guy missed the caring by a ball park.On advice of regular vet's office I called,then took Rotti to the Humane Society we had adopted him from.His suffering was over in 9 minutes.I will spend the rest of my life trying to forget the suffering tormented eyes that kept looking to me for help in those 78 minutes spent at Pirzada's inept hands.Porgieo

Pros: makes house calls

Cons: Clueless about Euthanasia Protocol

Do not take your pets here!!! I took my cat for declawing and neutering... Dr. Pizda butchered my cats paws. I had to take him to a different vet and have them fix the damage that Dr. Pizda did. He cut off over half of my cats pads didn't sew him back up right. He also gave him pain med. that was not approved for cats. The med. he gave my cat causes kidney faliure!! The new vet told me if i wouldn't have brought my cat in he would have never healed. Please don't trust that man!

Dr. Pirzada came out in the snow on a Tuesday night (9 PM) for an emergency with my 19 y/o feline. He was polite courteous and explained the illness, medications and the charges. Although it was expensive, having prior experience with other ""Emergency"" vets, it was fairlyreasonable. Especially since he came back in and reopened the clinic for me. It was my first visit to him and I felt comfortable he would do all he could to save my kitty and I felt relief that he was in good hands rather than me waiting until morning and making him suffer or possibly die overnight. I also understood that at his age, my feline might not make it overnight. The treatment may prolong his life or not, but at least I knew he was being taken care of.\r
